Lanai is filled with such serene and secluded beauty. If you want your own island to explore then this is the place to be! Filled with tall pine trees in town you would never think you were in Hawaii.
We visited Keahiakawelo right before sunset and felt like aliens on another planet. Read below for some helpful tips before visiting.
This otherworldly landscape is filled with many rocks and boulders. Legend goes that two priests from Maui and Molokai held a contest to see who could keep a fire burning the longest. The longest lasting would be gifted with great abundance. Lanai's priest used all of the resources available to him leaving the barren landscape as we see it today.
- Best time to visit is early morning and sunset. The formation of the rocks cast awesome shadows during the golden and twilight hours, a photographers playground.
- MALAMA `AINA - care for the land. Leave this place cleaner then when you came and don't rearrange or step on the rocks.
- On clear days you can see Molokai and Oahu.
Accessible to visit via bicycle or four-wheel drive. The dirt road is marked, but you will want to check accessibility beforehand since sometimes the rain and mud can wash away the road.
